The WarningDialog

This dialog is used to inform the user of a possible mistake in the program or with the interaction with the program.

A typical example might be when you select the quit button (or menu item) to terminate the program - if this was selected mistakenly and there is no warning prompt you have got problems!!

The dialog1.c program attaches a pop-up WarningDialog when the quit menu option is selected (Fig 12).

If you now select OK the program terminates.

Cancel returns back to the program.

How do we do this?
